Excellent Heavy Strings
I use these strings in standard tuning. I got the idea from reading how Malcolm Young of AC/DC used 12-58 gauge strings on his Gretsch for his tight growling rhythm work over the years. I love the feel of tight strings--lots of snap and bite and none of that floppy feel that you get with lighter strings when you hit them really hard. When tuned to standard, you can hit these strings with just about all you have and they won't go momentarily sharp, like most other strings do. It's almost like the feel of an acoustic on your electric, but still has enough slack to pull off decent bends.

Great Strings
Bought these to use on my Fender Black Top Baritone Telecaster. Excellent low growl on low strings, sparkle nicely on high strings. Best baritone strings I have found for this guitar. Intonated easily and stay in tune very well!

Great Strings!
These are great strings for Drop B! At least on a baritone they are! They have the perfect balance between tension and heaviness.
